For the first time on the base of 3D gravity and magnetic modeling results with the use of the data of DSS, seis mic tomography, geological structure of the Precambrian basement, and sedimentary cover, the geologo-geophysical heterogeneities of the lithosphere are considered as indicators of different stages of the rift formation — the initial passive and subsequent active ones. The roles of shear deformations and rotational movements in the formation and development of the rift are shown.
